Is Ignorance bliss ? Are Americans really all that dumb ?
I received the video below in an email Forward:Fwd today :
'THIS IS PATHETIC !
This came from a friend in the U.K.
Think about it....these people likely vote, too !'
The amusing video clip from British Television seeks answers
by asking some General Knowledge questions to average
Americans (from various age/race groups) on the street, and then
leaves it up to us to draw our own conclusions :
O-kay. So it's a funny but not very flattering picture that emerges.
So why is it that even post-9/11 there are so many people wanting
to immigrate there to partake of the 'American Dream' ? Since America is
a land overwhelmingly made up of immigrants, where does all this
awareness come from, Borat ? Definitely not from all the smart-asses
who choose to get paid in US $$. Are there that many non-Americans
who would give up their blissful lives in their own countries to throw
in their lot with 'stupid Americans' ?
Inquiring minds may want to know, but I don't, because I'm blissfully ignorant.
